Have any Lewis members used DNA analysis to further their Lewis surname genealogy? If so, how did it help your research?
I have no evidence, other than other researchers say-so, that Henry Lewis married Kendall. It may be true, but I took it off my tree. If anyone has evidence, I would like to know about it.
As far as I can tell, there is no evidence Henry Lewis m Buford has documents of being connected to anyone. The court houses and many documents in Virginia burned during the Civil War.
People really need to do in-depth DNA testing to sort out the Lewis families in America! I do not think simple, low marker tests will be relevant for genealogy research. My maternal grandmother was a Lewis, but my Mt-DNA is not relevant except for close relatives.
Seeking info on Elizabeth Lewis who married William Rush in 1724 in Philadelphia or possibly NJ. He is the son of John and Sarah Carver Rush.
When there are surnames, like Lewis, with different haplogroups. The DNA results helps.
You will likely not find DNA connections to recent ancestors. The strength of DNA research is in finding those ancient connections by comparing DNA results with genealogical documentation.
DNA results are only relative, since so many genealogical lineages share similar DNA profiles. We can use DNA to provide direction for our paper research, but it will be unlikely to reveal specific relationships.
When laying out your ancestral line, it's important to show where your ancestors were from. There are so many Thomases, Johns, Edwards, Roberts, and just about every other given name in our line, we need to know where they lived and when in order to sort them out.
I don't know if there were any Lewis participating in the DNA chart from Oklahoma. This was my point. It is too hard to tell. I had/have Lewis in Oklahoma also, but mine do not appear to connect with yours, except maybe a very long time ago.
Are there any of the Kansas?Oklahoma Lewis' participating on the Dna tree? I looked but can't find my connection. http://mylewis.tribalpages.com/tribe/browse?userid=mylewis&mmg=...
It looks like your Lewis are not the same family as mine. Sorry.
